2007 Ford Freestyle SEL 4dr Wagon (3.0L 6cyl CVT)


We have put almost 15,000 miles on our Freestyle in less than a year. We just returned from a trip to Florida with 7 passengers (6 adult sized people plus a toddler) and luggage. Maybe it is because I don't test drive sports cars, but the pro reviewers missed the boat on the CVT and power. 25-27 mpg fully loaded and passing other cars going up the mountains. Too bad Ford dropped this powertrain for more horsepower and poorer mileage. The only problems I have heard about are the premature tire wear and rear brakes. Our tires are ok so far, and we'll see on the brakes. I think the writers did a disservice to this car. The Freestyle is not flashy, but does what it is meant to do.

Best Features

Smooth acceleration (CVT), mileage, ride, nice looking vehicle, flexibility for carrying passengers or cargo.

Worst Features

Cloth seats could be better quality, and the visibility through the rear window is not the best. Jury out on tires and rear brakes until owned longer. Tires look ok so far, but am rotating at every oil change.
